SRS (Stationary Rope System) Climbing Ropes

Stationary Rope System (SRS) used to be called Single Rope Technique (SRT). In SRS, the climber anchors the rope either in the canopy or at the base of the tree, and the rope does not move. (Contrast with a Moving Rope System (MRS). Good ropes for MRS are 24-strand or 16-strand climbing ropes.)

SRS uses mechanical ascenders sometimes with toothed-cams. This is hard on ropes, so Kernmantles are popular. These have a load-bearing core and a tight jacket to protect it from wear. A good SRS line will have minimal stretch or elongation - very important on long ascents.

We have selected these top ropes for your SRS climbing setup.

6,300 lb. minimum breaking strength - 7/16” (10.5m) - Weighs 5.2 lb. per 100’ - Kernmantle

Platinum's unique braiding process joins the braided cover with the core at regular intervals. This eliminates cover slippage, and bunching. This makes it an extremely consistent and reliable rappelling line and can be used for canopy access.

7,418 lb. minimum breaking strength - 9/20” (11.5mm) - Weighs 6 lb. per 100’ - Kernmantle

Since the debut of platinum, climbers have been waiting for a "big platinum" to arrive, and here it is. The larger hand of Platinum makes it friendlier for arborists used to climbing on 1/2” lines, though Platinum Arbor Access comes in at 11.5mm - 9/20” and just a hair under 1/2”. The larger diameter of Platinum brings an increase in minimum breaking strength to an impressive 7,418 lb. and only increases the weight to 6lb per 100'.

Like the smaller version, Platinum 11.5mm Arbor Access has regular bonding of the core and cover over the length of the rope, for a kernmantle with no cover slippage, bunching, or milking.
